The neighborhood is historical, walk-able, tree-lined, and the town is an authentic, working fishing town. This is classic New England. Antique homes of character, Romanesque buildings, stone walls, etc. Fairhaven, a small picturesque town shares a harbor with New Bedford. This harbor is the biggest income producing fishing harbor in all of America. we have nearly 500 working fishing boats here. So, great seafood. Fairhaven has a pretty, mile-long sandy beach as well.
You can take a plane (New Bedford Airport, Logan Airport, or T.F. Green Airport), bus or boat here and you can walk around town easily. We also have a bike path.
